Cozumel Scuba Diving Tour Description (PM)

World-class drift dives on legendary coral reefs and walls in Cozumel

Looking for fast company, amigo? Then choose our afternoon two-tank express trip. It’s your secret pass into the fast lane. Speeding along the coast at 25 knots is an exhilarating experience — as exciting as the diving itself!

The boat departs between 1:00 and 1:30pm. We make pick-ups at Dive Paradise locations and affiliate resorts.

After the second dive, we head home. Most afternoon express trips return around 5:00pm.

After your pick-up, the boat speeds south. We’ll whisk you to Cozumel’s vibrant walls and reefs for two exciting drift dives. On express trips we usually carry only six divers, and we provide one Divemaster for the group. That way, we keep groups small underwater.

At Dive Paradise, we entrust guests to the care of our certified, in-water Divemasters. Their goal is to guide you on safe, pleasurable dives along the reefs in the national marine park. We serve complimentary soft drinks and purified water.

Your safety remains our number one priority at Dive Paradise. So we emphasize conservative dive profiles. We recommend a dive computer for this trip — BYO (bring your own) or rent from Dive Paradise.

So, amigos, welcome aboard for your afternoon express 2-tank trip! Relax, kick back, feel safe. At Dive Paradise, service is always friendly, personal, attentive — and professional.

Dive Paradise in Cozumel

At Dive Paradise our fleet includes a special generation of express boats: a half dozen speedy craft — each solid, stable, wide of beam, roomy and comfortable. Six fast boats, each perfectly adapted for drift diving Cozumel in small, intimate groups.

Other dive operators may sacrifice safety and comfort on the altar of speed. But at Dive Paradise we never compromise. With our impressive express boats, speed, comfort and safety all go hand in hand. Count on us for fast boats with lots of “elbow room.”

Your boat then speeds south to the walls and reefs.

After the second dive, we head home. Most afternoon express trips return around 5:00pm.

We need a minimum of four divers to offer this trip. If we can’t book four, we offer four options: you may cover the cost of the vacant diver spots, reschedule, arrange a rain check for same dive, or request a refund.

Small groups

Many of our fast boats accommodate ten divers, but we usually carry only six. On express trips we provide one Divemaster for each six divers. If a group exceeds six, we split it in two and send an extra Divemaster. That way, we keep groups small underwater.

Safety is Numero Uno

Your safety remains our number one priority at Dive Paradise. So we emphasize conservative dive profiles. We recommend a dive computer — BYO (bring your own) or rent from Dive Paradise.

How do you select dive sites?

It’s “divers’ choice” — Divemasters present options and look for a friendly consensus. When necessary, the crew may select the dive sites, in consideration of safety factors such as strong currents or weather.

Driving a rental car?

Consider departing from the Dive Paradise location at Hotel Barracuda. You can park in the lot of the Mega shopping center. Mega is directly across the street from the Hotel Barracuda.

Diving from a fast boat is different than diving from a big “Caribbean” boat. How so?

Express trips cater to more experienced divers. Everything happens at a quicker rhythm, so it pays to think two or three steps ahead. A little preparation goes a long way

Express boats have sturdy portable ladders instead of dive platforms. To drop into the water, divers use a backward roll, over the side. The crew hangs the ladder on the side of the boat, and divers exit the water via the ladder. Need help with unfamiliar skills? Just ask — the Divemasters stand ready to assist!

Express boats are open. They’re not covered on the top and sides. So the wise diver prepares for exposure to nature’s elements: sun, wind, rolling seas, rain, splashes, heat, and (sometimes, even in Cozumel) cold.
Express boats do not have toilets.
